My daughter will be moving out soon

My daughter will be moving out soon

I have to say, this week seems to be flying by. I’ve been busy too without exhaustion. That’s the most important part. I’ve had some really good, sweaty workouts. I love those. I unfortunately had to once again shut the windows and turn the AC on. The way my building is situated and my windows line up, the wind direction makes a big difference. If the wind is moving away from the building than I get no air into my…

Out of my routine

Out of my routine

I’m anxious today. I’ve had too many days already out of my normal routine and today is no different. I have to get the covid booster at 12 and game day in the building is at 1. I just finished exercising and getting dressed but I feel rushed. It didn’t help that I smacked my head on these ridiculous metal bars that are right behind my head on my wheelchair. All I need to do is not lean back straight…

The week ahead

The week ahead

It was a non existent hurricane in my area yesterday. Not just non existent but after the rain in the morning we didn’t even have rain. My mom, who lives 13 minutes from me, had rain on and off all day. My friend in the town next to me also had rain all day on and off but not me. It was so strange. The sun even started coming out while my mom was experiencing pouring rain. She didn’t believe…

Sometimes life is unfair

Sometimes life is unfair

Happy Friday. I’m sitting here deciding what I want to write about because I know I have things I want to say, I just don’t know if I want to say it in my blog. My blog,that I’ve written the most embarrassing moments, I suddenly don’t want to put my feelings on display. Unfortunately, my blog has been my place I work my shit out for years now. I don’t think I can truly move forward until I figure it…

Multiple sclerosis is physical and mental

Multiple sclerosis is physical and mental

I had physical therapy again yesterday which once again ended up disappointing. I walked less than I ever walked in these sessions of PT. I woke up feeling good. I did my normal morning routine. I felt good and then I started getting tired. Therapy was at 12 and by that time I was already feeling fatigued. I was determined to walk but my body wasn’t matching my will. It was pathetic and frustrating from the first step. Why??? This…

Rediscovering Dark Side of the Moon

Rediscovering Dark Side of the Moon

I forgot to take my nighttime pills before bed the other night. I should have realized when I was still awake after 11 o’clock. I was tired but unable to sleep. My leg was twitching, my neck was having little spasms and I don’t want to discuss what my stomach was doing. I can say it was the attention on my stomach that made me fall to realize why I was twitching. I’ve had a bunch of nights I forgot…

I don’t recommend Physical therapy during the summer

I don’t recommend Physical therapy during the summer

Before I start my blog I want to wish my dear friend Hindi a Happy 50th Birthday. I love you. Have the greatest day. I’m melting. I am fully inside with the AC cranking but I feel the heat inside my bones. I was trying to transfer to my comfy chair this morning and it took me 10 minutes. I didn’t fall but my legs were like jelly. I kept having to repositioning myself to get the right stance to…

MS won this time

MS won this time

I had a very disappointing physical therapy session yesterday. I walked about a hallway and a half. The second full hallway still being my goal but once again escaping my grasp. I got tired and tried to sit for a second or two before I started my trek home. That was probably the beginning of the bad decisions. The upright walker isn’t easy to turn around with but even harder when you are trying to turn around to sit. There…

A trip to the gastroenterologist

A trip to the gastroenterologist

I made it through this week. It was difficult at times but I stand by my decision to not bring in a substitute aide. I did have my regular aide in for the day yesterday because I had a doctor appointment. She was so helpful that she made herself available to be here during her vacation. I didn’t even ask her, she offered immediately when she realized I had an appointment. I went to the gastroenterologist. Always dealing with the…

Positive quotes for multiple sclerosis

Positive quotes for multiple sclerosis

I had a lousy physical therapy session yesterday. Actually pathetic was more like it. Lousy multiple sclerosis day and I have no idea why. My physical therapist says he wished he had a manic pill to cure MS. I would settle for a pill that gave me the day off or even an hour off. I miss being able to dance. I’m watching this tv show about dancing and I could never move the way they do. However what I…
